About the restaurant Le Socrate

ESPRIT CANAILLE - Il y a une atmosphère de bouchon lyonnais dans ce vieux bistrot tout proche de Plainpalais et du boulevard des Philosophes ! Déco rétro et objets anciens aux murs, sol en damier et petites tables en bois : Le Socrate est un bon troquet comme on les aime.

SAVEURS D'ANTAN - À vous les petits plats fait maison à la Française ! Terrine de la grand-mère Angèle ou os à moelle à la fleur de sel, joue de bœuf braisée, souris d'agneau confite au thym frais et fondant au chocolat, vous ferez le plein d’authenticité.

BY GAULT MILLAU - Recommandé par le célèbre guide, voici un joli recoin de Genève où l’on vient aussi pour déguster un bon verre de vin…

Arrived for a 7pm booking with my son. Restaurant was completely empty. Staff asked us to sit at small table away from window. I asked to sit by window and staff did ok. I made my way to a small corner table laid out for three, but male staff member shouted across that table was set for three, so we sat at smaller table next to this. Female staff member was very good and served politely and quickly. Food was very good. I asked for a large beer and was told only bottled so had a bottle of beer. About 30 mins later another table came in and they were served what appeared to be a large beer! Overall food very good but I would not return.

Good solid traditional stuff that is more and more difficult to find, at the appropriate quality level: os a moelle, atriaux, ris de veau, etc. Lighter courses were also available and looked good, but they were not our target. Food reasonably priced, good desserts. We arrived perhaps too early (19:30) and we had to wait a lot for the appetizer, however for the main course and the dessert the pace and the attentiveness of the service were fine.

Arriving just 15 minutes early to our 7pm reservation (I made just earlier that afternoon), the boyfriend and I were greeted by our ever so enthusiastic waiter who let us seat anywhere we wanted. The place was empty so it felt like we had the entire place to ourselves! Perhaps that's normal on Monday.

We are light eaters so we shared one full meal, which was:

SALAD À LA LYONNAISE - 14 CHF
Oeuf poché, croutons, lardons.

JOUE DE BŒUF BRAISÉE, POMMES PURÉE - 36 CHF

SABLÉ AUSC FRAMBOISES - 12 CHF

Everything was delicious!!!

Thanks to THE FORK, our bill came out to be 36,50, which is like $38!!!! Now that is super cheap for nice dining in Geneva. Wow!

Overall I had such a wonderful time. Our server was such a delight! He made me laugh so many times with his humor, even though we had a language barrier. I forgot to ask for his name, but he's the thin, tall, young and handsome fella. Thank you so much for giving us such a memorable last evening in Geneva!

Best lamb shank (souris d'agneau) in Geneva - better even than Lipp! Great food all round. Excellent and friendly service. All in all, super restaurant.

Always exemplary execution of textbook bistro cuisine. Extremely well presented and equally well enjoyed.
